Pot Of Monarch Eggs

This is the earliest I have ever seen a Monarch and had eggs in the 10 years I've been raising them! They are not due here in this area for another month!

There are 22 eggs all together here on these tiny milkweed plants. At least that's how many I counted. I have another 3 on another larger plant and many, many more in the yard I haven't harvested yet. A GREAT start to the butterfly raising for 2012!

For those of you who are new to my project, here is the link to my butterfly blog. Last year I didn't complete it because I broke my elbow. I've already started it for this year too.

How exciting! I'd love to try raising butterflies but I know they have very picky tastes so I wish you luck and look forward to seeing the results.
